He Reigns! The Solemnity of Christ the King
by Bishop Robert Barron . November 26, 2017 .
When Israel begins to long for a new David, the true David and true king of the world, we witness the longing for God. Jesus Christ is precisely this king: the Davidic king, and God ruling his creation. His ministry reveals the nature of his kingship, from the manger to the cross.
Bishop Barron on Catholic Relics
by Bishop Robert Barron . October 12, 2017 .
While filming for our “Pivotal Players” series, I had the chance to view the skeletal remains of St. Ambrose, the great fourth-century bishop of Milan. However, when I posted pictures on social media, many people were a bit put off. Why do Catholics venerate dead bodies and relics? Answering this question throws light on some pretty interesting issues in Catholic theology.
In the Form of God
by Bishop Robert Barron . October 1, 2017 .
Some skeptics suggest the divinity of Jesus is a myth, or a later invention of the Church, that Jesus was nothing more than an ordinary man or great teacher. But in today's text from St. Paul, an exceptionally early text traced to within a handful of years of Jesus' death, we find a clear declaration of the contrary. Jesus is described as being in the “form of God,” a staggering claim that affirms his divinity. Yet even still, he did not grasp at his godliness, but emptied himself and took the form a slave.
